I have to attend a family gathering in madison this weekend and I can get away on saturday to do a little fishing. I was hoping to get my 9 yr old into a salmon or two. I myself have only fished them a couple of times and never in the milwaukee area. Are they running yet and does anyone know of an area we could fish from shore? Are there even any streams in the area or is most salmon fishing done further north? I'm just looking for a point in the right direction as I know nothing about this area.. I know he would love to hook into one and this will be my only chance this year. Thank you in advance for any info. Shane

Shane. I grew up in mildub. Lived there for twenty five years. And know Lake Michigan like the back of my hand. Go to Mikinley marina. Great shore fishing. Also try under the Hoan Bridge(Milwakee River). Its kinda funny what a shiner 7ft under a bobber will get ya at this time of year. good luck. If I had my choice I would go after the enevitable 17" perch. but that is in nov. under the bridge.

Thank you for the info Hotime. hopefully I can put it to good use. If I may ask another question, Can I assume these areas are walls or large rocks where a person needs a long handled net to get the fish? Thanks

    • Kewaunnee 8/8-8/13 My dad and I fished out of Kewaunee for about 5 days and it was slow but steady for us. Ended up 12-16 with about a dozen shakers on top of that and a couple drive byes. We caught fish in 80-165 fow but fished as deep as 370 fow with only one drive by in 312 fow for the deep run. One one fish in a meat rig, one on a flasher fly, 3(+5 shakers) on clean spoons, 1 in a spoon with a dodger and 6(+7 shakers) on a spoon pro troll 8" spin ray. We added the spinner/spoon into the spread the last 2 1/2 days. Outside of the shakers the fish ran nice but no giants with the biggest just over 19 lbs. Sog was 2.2-2.8 mph. Surface temps ran 67-73 degrees. Fish were caught 40-70 feet down.

      Talking to a few other boats reports varied from 0-8 fish per trip and boats were scatteredall over the lake. Some big fish being caught and lost. Here's a few pics from our trip.
